Introduction to the Power of NLP.
The power of NLP is all about opening up choice and possibilities. NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, is a collection of techniques, tools and models, modelled on excellence, which allow us to change our model of the world, opening up choices and giving us greater control of our lives. The techniques allow us to understand how we experience the world around us, how our minds, conscious and unconscious, process our experiences, and what we can do to enhance and manage those abilities. It is a way of thinking. It is a way of doing. It is a way of being.

Using and Learning NLP
As a client, you will be mostly unaware of which techniques are being used. All you are aware of are new ways of thinking, new ways of doing, new ways of being as you continue through the sessions. You recognise new possibilities, greater choice, and additional opportunities. One or two of the techniques require some explanation and some preparatory work, all of which is woven seamlessly and coherently into the work that we are doing. All done to effect change and to build on your success.
The only time you would need to know and understand the techniques would be if you decide to become a Practitioner of NLP. And, of course, this may become part of what you want to achieve.
